Ice is Slowly Melting
Look Into the Sun (Messengers, volume 2)
By James Patrick Kelly
1989’s Look Into the Sun was the second volume in James Patrick Kelly’s Messenger Chronicles.
Mid-twentieth century Earth was thrilled when the alien Messengers made contact. The Messengers appear to have been less thrilled to have contacted Earth. The Messengers shared none of their hinted-at technological miracles. They didn’t even invite a divided Earth to join their commonwealth. As far as humanity goes, first contact seems to be a bit of a bust.
Phillip Wing is another matter. The Messengers are very interested in Wing.
